Of businesses do not have any type of emergency recovery plan in place prior to disasters3

No matter when or where disaster or emergency strikes, businesses need to have a recovery plan to reopen quickly. As part of a thorough recovery plan, preparing for an efficient and safe clean-up can help minimize risk of financial loss and failure.
